My wife and I started gardening in Fukuoka (Japan) in 2003. There was nothing but muddy clayey sloping land. At the beginning we made several structure such as steps and paths, and planted turf, fruit trees, roses, herbs etc.
In 2010, we visited several famous English gardens, including Sissinghurst Castle Garden, Mottisfont Abbey Garden and Hidcote Manor Garden. We were shocked by the glory of those gardens. Since then, we have been trying to make little but glorious gardens by ourselves.
UNSEASONABLE FLOWERS OF APPLE (季節外れのリンゴの花)
Almost all leaves of apple trees have fallen in the potager.
However, some unseasonable flowers are in bloom now.
They look so cute.
I'm looking forward to the spring when they bear a number of flowers,
and also hoping to harvest plenty of fruit.
